Rhubarb is synonymous with the season of spring, so when cooking with the tarty-flavoured, pink-coloured vegetable it’s a vibrant affair all-around. Many identify rhubarb as having a slight strawberry taste that's certainly sweet, yet never overpowering.
Here are four extra-fun ways to use the versatile veg:
Cod fillets with rhubarb and citrus salsa
What better way to parade the aweing colours of red onion, orange, and rhubarb than laid over a perfectly flaky, white cod fillet? With zing and a hint of chilli heat, this dish has it all and tastes just as impressive as it looks.
Rhubarb and vanilla upside-down cake
If you think a perfect vanilla-speckled sponge is enough, think again! In this recipe, the sponge is then topped with tangy rhubarb and a dollop of whipped cream for a stunning cake you’ll never forget.
Rhubarb and creamy custard millefeuille
Inspired by a French classic, this stacked treat is made with crispy pastry, custard, and syrupy rhubarb to add a British twist. Pistachios are sprinkled throughout for a nutty taste and burst of bright green.
Rhubarb and gin jellies
Is there anything more fun than jelly? Absolutely not! But what about bright-pink coloured, gin jelly? Okay... that’s way more fun. Made with tart fresh rhubarb and a kick of fruity gin liqueur, this wobbly dessert is strictly for grown-ups!
